I don't see it as a bug.  If you subclass Document your subclass is
responsible for managing some of Document's internals.  We
*intentionally* don't do any work in the protected constructor because
some subclasses may not want to waste time constructing a list that may
not be used.  In other words, only a subclass that knows what it's doing
should call new Document().
